I’m a British designer, artist and a person with a passion for all things creative. I’m also wild about intricate, classical European design and lean very heavily towards loving all that is opulent.

Constantly craving for inspiration to fuel my imagination and take my work to the new heights you will find me at my happiest, walking through palaces in Paris, exploring new countries, cultures and historical places.



About me skiing





I’m a graduate from The Nottingham Trent University, with a Textile Design degree and spent a few years working freelance as an embroidery designer. I sold my designs to Japan, New York, Los Angeles, Germany and Australia. Now, after many years, after marrying and starting a family, I happily spend most of my time working abroad and travelling regularly with my family between England, Paris, Portugal and the Gulf.






Life holds so much inspiration. Flowers, architecture, elaborate interiors, wallpapers or old antique floor tiles, they all spur my imagination . I am committed to pushing myself forward, taking my calligraphy and art to new heights and getting lost in the details that look so perfect in the end.




About me

Rubana was an absolute delight to work with!  She listened to what my hopes were and what she delivered was above and beyond, her calligraphy is so effortlessly beautiful!  Not to mention, I needed something from her on super short notice and what she was able to create was so intricate and thoughtful.  Her work is the highest quality, and her attention to detail is incredible.  I would work with Rubana again and again!

Rubana created a bespoke and incredibly heartfelt stationary for our wedding, we could feel she put her love and attention in every brush stroke. She was absolutely wonderful from the first email contact she was attentive, professional and someone my husband and I loved dealing with – it was clear she loved her art. Creating our wedding stationary with her meant she gave us her creative advise, guided us and wanted our input – we gave her complete creative freedom and the results were really special, totally exceeded our expectations. We were both completely blown away with her art and still feel so privileged that our paths crossed and she created such wonderful invitation suite for us. Our family and friends felt the same. What makes it all even more special is her, really one in a million and incredibly attentive.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Crimson Letters twice now and both times she has blown me away. Aside from the fact that her work is unique and absolutely gorgeous, her professionalism and ease to work with makes hiring her a no-brainer. I am obsessed with her attention to detail…it’s unlike any other stationary I have seen! She makes it easy to get lost in her work. I’m so grateful I have had the opportunity to create with her beautiful art.

Forever a fan,
Nicole Ashley
